Klara Kristalova Maneater

Klara Kristalova ‘Maneater’ 2009

Two of Klara Kristalova’s sculptures are on display at the Goldfrapp: Artist as Curator exhibition at the Lowry, Salford. The exhibition curated by Alison Goldfrapp focusses on folklore and fairtales, a fitting backdrop to Kristalova’s melancholic ceramics. At first sight they appear beautiful, almost child-like and then upon closer inspection they reveal an almost sinister underside. Her piece Maneater depicts a serene white swan with a screaming mouth and frightened eyes pressed into the feathers.
